After a year of research, design, development and content creation we launched a brand new website for UKCP in December 2020.
We've tried to minimise disruption wherever possible, but we are sorry for any inconvenience caused during the transition.
Here we highlight some of the changes we have made, offer answers for common questions, and explain how to let us know if something isn't working.
The current website design and platform did not serve UKCP’s many different online audiences as well as it could do, and in some cases not at all. In particular:
Please see our list of new features and improvements below for details, but essentially, we have:
Our digital partner was Wattle, who were appointed following a tender process at the end of 2019. The project was managed by Content and Engagement Lead (Maternity Cover) Sarah Jackson, and delivered with the support of a Project Team made up of staff from several departments, overseen by project sponsor, CEO Sarah Niblock, and a Steering Group composed of UKCP leadership plus representatives from organisational members and colleges.
Your current profile picture, copy, and links on your existing profile will be recreated on the new website automatically, so you don’t need to do anything.
However, if you’d like to take advantage of some of the new features we’re introducing, you can update your profile now, or any time before or after the site goes live.
You can manage your profile in the same place as usual, in the members log in area. Please see our updated guide to updating your Find A Therapist profile for full instructions.
When moving to a new website with a different structure it's sadly inevitable that some old links will no longer work. To try and minimise disruption we set up redirects for the top 100 pages at which people arrive at the site, but sadly we couldn't catch everything. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
Almost all of the content from the old UKCP site has been migrated over to the new one, so what you're looking for is probably still here, just in a different place.
Please try using our site search, which you can access by clicking the magnifying glass icon at the top of every page. Or you can try browsing the site using the menus at the top of every page, and on the left hand side of most pages.
If you're really stuck, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to find what you're looking for.
This could be for several reasons:
There are always some bugs and glitches when a new website launches and it would really help us if you could let us know if you find something that doesn’t seem to be working as it should.
Please email us at email@example.com with a full description of what’s happening, and a link to the relevant page.
If you can include a screen capture so that we can see exactly what you see, as well as details about whether you’re on a Mac or a PC and what internet browser you’re using, that will help us find out what’s going on more quickly.
